love you all out there in archive land
I've been delving into the Archive to find great bands I've not yet been exposed to. Here's another. Wow. It's got a great feel, like Herbie Hancock meets the Dead, or something thereabouts. The keys are very well spoken, I like the balance between keys and guitar...
Also, can I please virtually bow at the awesomeness of Charlie Miller. This guy is a legend beyond words. He's given me some of my all-time favorite dead shows, and apparently has great taste in music. New strategy: listen to every Charlie Miller recording.
Subject: Three years ago today
The very last performance of the late, great Steve Kimock Band. And what a way to go out. Great setlist, very strong performance. Steve's done some great things in the ensuing freelance period, and Crazy Engine will be enjoyable no doubt, but I will always miss SKB.
top notch indeed
Subject: Simply divine
This show is heart achingly beautiful... it moves the soul, expands the mind and makes me feel happy.
Subject: Truly unbelievable!!! A Must!
Kudos Steve, Rodney, Robert, and Reed!!! Cannot step away from the Long Form Part 1 for more than a few hours at a time...it has lived in my cd player for weeks now. This show builds throughout and there is very fine communication and interplay. Great to see Robert Walter bring his sound into the picture, his unique touch adds a new brush of genius to this ever evolving group. The sound quality gets a sure 5, and the musicianship gets even more... Thank you Charlie Miller for another incredible matrix....it is so great to see truly powerful and beautiful music come out of a day in age where it is so scarce and far between...Peace, Love and Namaste....
I've heard a lot of great SKB shows, but this one tops them all. If you are going to get someone into SKB then this is the one. Tops in my book!!!!!
Subject: It's Up To You!
Impeccable sound quality. Great versions of It's Up To You, The Long Form, and what I believe is the only appearance of Vernal Equinox. If nothing else, listen to the It's Up To You... Superb.
I havent seen SKB in a few years, wanted to see him since Robert joined but havent been able to. I've really enjoyed the new sound. Listening to Robert Walter is such a joy with Kimock, i really like having the Organ/Keys in the mix. Cole's Law is the highlight of the show for me, absolutely beautiful. Rodney is always a rhythm machine and the addition of Reed Mathis is also great, i'll echo the comment that its nice to see a solid bassist in the band since bobby's departure. This recording sounds great.

I just saw Steve Kimock with The Nate Wilson project!!! They played at Camp Creek this year in Mariaville, New York. If anyone has that show or is going to get it let me know!!
love and peace
Subject: Smokin New Sound
I do have to profess that the New sound is much desired. Check out Nana's Chalk Pipe, and Cole's Law.
Subject: if you like this one
Truckbomb, if you like this one, try the "warm-up" band on 1/22/06 - Mike Babyak's Triple Fret. Kimock sat in for their gig - and like the "main" act - it too is pretty good.
Subject: Freaking right
I downloaded this show and listened to it all the way through. It was the first Steve Kimock Band I have ever heard. I was blown away to say the least. Can anyone help me out and provide a discography for the tracks that they played since I am trying to now amass a healthy SKB collection. Rock on.

Subject: envious of anyone who was there
Alone, Steve Kimock and Rob Walters are two of my all time favorite musicians. Put them together and you have music too good to describe. (Not to mention that Reed M. is sick as hell, too) These guys are defining the ideal/perfect sound for me, and I really want to get the chance to see this lineup live.
I just saw the thursday show of Steve's three night run with New Monsoon in SF, which was pretty sweet. This is much more my style, but it was really awesome music, and I hope its posted soon.
Subject: thanks, but where is the Blue Note 4-22-06
This is great!!!! Streaming it at work in midtown manhattan makes the work day go faster......
but is there any chance of the KPMW from the Blue Note seeing the light of day?
That was an intense great experience, especially from the front row right in front of Steve.
First off, just lemme say the main reason i chose to give this 5 stars was the sound quality. I have many kimock shows but this was sounds hands down BETTER. The show itself is very solid indeed. REED MATHIS as well.....that bass solo in there in the first set is simply funk nasty. Definitely would recomend for any music fan. CHECK IT OUT NOW
Subject: heck yeah
better than ever
Subject: Great instrumental music!
Excellent sound quality, great music. Thanks for recommending this in the Staff Picks!
Subject: I Stand Corrected
I'm only about half way through, but I must have to say the playing is impressive. I have NEVER been much of a Kimock fan. Every time I have scene him live I thought that he always played the same overly dramatic songs and I couldn't understand why my friends went nuts.
Well this show just plain has the primo. Sound, instramentation, energy. Keep it coming!
this show was so sick. kimock and walters were really hittin it off. All night they were just smiles. Rodney was really gettin into it to and just went nuts on his solo. cant say enough about this show. take a listen, your in for treat.adios i im gonna take another listen for myself.
one of the best shows i have gotten from archive in a while. This is my first listen to the skb, and im really likin the sound.
Subject: Instrumental Kimock-besides skb
Great sound quality.
Did Zero ever go through any strictly instrumental phases? I know kvhw was at one point purely instrumental, does anyone know the exact dates?
This is a good show and recording. "Vernal Equinox" is by Reed Mathis, as noted, and has been performed by the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey since 2001. Interesting to hear how Kimock does it!
im still in the 1st set, but already im sold.. who is singing on In Time ?? Rodney? nice..
the opening track is a must hear jam ya'll - it just goes everywhere and back again! i am really pulling for this lineup to stay together for a LONG time.. i can only imagine how the energy interplay can evolve as the band gets more comfortable with each other..beautiful recording to top off the stellar playing.. i'm gonna have to give this one multiple listenings...
Subject: new songs?
Does anyone have any info on these new songs(In Time, Vernal Equinox, and Adelita? Maybe they are not new and I just haven't noticed/heard them before.
As far as a review goes, this show continues the trend of spectacular performances that the current SKB lineup has been providing. Highlights: Vernal Equinox and It's Up to You. I give it a 5 for sound quality, and a 5 for performance because this band is too good to get anything lower.
I find it funny that so many people miss Moose. I definitely like him, but his departure from the group marked a new era for SKB. I feel that Reed Mathis and Robert Walter are the final pieces to the puzzle that Steve and Rodney have been trying to solve since Rodney joined. While replacing a second guitar w/ keys certainly gives them a different sound, Robert Walter more than fills the gap left by Moose. And thank god for Reed Mathis. SKB has been in need for a solid bassist ever since Vega left the group, and Reed has finally come to the rescue. I hope these guys stay together, because they are the best thing going in the jam world, and are raising the bar for the whole jam band scene.
Oh yeah and thanks once again to SKB for the tunes and Charlie Miller yet again for continually providing the crispest SBD recordings. Sorry that was so long.
there are not words to describe the absolute synergy between all members of SKB this night. the first set manages to bring the listener in, almost like a lullaby, with deceptive sweetness and rolling, gentle notes. then, the second set proves to be where the band just cuts loose, paving the way with funky improv and new takes on familiar themes.
sometimes, SKB shows can be a bit tedious, or workmanlike. and then there are times where the band just HITS the zone... where you know from the opening notes that this is no ordinary experience.
prepare to be amazed...
I was at the show, and I was blown away. It was my first time seeing steve, and it was an incredible experience. Great atmosphere, great crowd, great everything. I almost cried when Steve started to play Cole's Law. Long Form was a great opener, and I declare that the It's Up To You to start the second set is the greatest song known to manking. DOWNLOAD NOW!
EDIT: I forgot to mention that during the show, Reed broke two strings. He broke his A string and then switched to a second bass. On the second bass he broke his E string on the second to last song. Steve went over to him and must have asked him do you still want to play one more. It looked like Reed then just shrugged it off and they played the last song with Reed on the 3 string bass.
Subject: this IS the line-up...period...
...and who cares about what we think. the band is in a groove it has never been in before, so...let it happen. and these people givin opinions with out listening...wtf izzzat? open ya ears b4 u open ur mouth!!!
get the Mike Babyak Tripple Fret w/kimock that musta opened the show...sweet!!!
thanks again Charlie, ya done good
Subject: My 2 cents
OK so I haven't heard even the slightest bit of this show. That being said, if it's a Steve Kimock/Charlie Miller matrix then it's a 5.
My 2 cents on the lineup issue:
Personally I feel that this Kimock line-up, with Reed Mathis on bass, Rodney Holmes on drums and Robert Walter on keys, has the best sound and energy of any SKB lineup yet. While I do enjoy the guitar interplay, I much prefer Steve as the "lone guitarist". And Walter's keys lend a more rich sound to the mix than another git does. But that's just me.
Now to DL.
Another beautiful recording and generous addition by Charlie Miller. The sound on this is phenomenal. Long Form 1 is fantastic - haven't made it through the whole show yet, but, man, does it sound great. 5 stars is just not enough for this.
Thanks for the stage recording Charlie and Steve. Hurry back to the Boston area, PLEASE!!
(edit) - i also agree with missing the two guitar interplay. i've mentioned it a couple of times too. the new band does sound great, but i miss Mitch.
Subject: Mitch Stein, Where are you?
Great recording, terrific audio, but I too miss the guitar interplay between Steve and Mitch. The renditions are sick, but they just seem to miss that punch. I love Kimock, but the jury is still out on this line-up for me.
Subject: Minority view
This is a GREAT recording. Thanks!
Love Kimock and his music, but...
I'm still not sold on this line-up.
I miss the interplay between Kimock and Mitch Stein.
The keyboard player is great but I feel the songs sound better with an extra guitar player.
I'll still support the band as Kimock is amazing.
Curious to know if others share my view or if I'm in the minority on this one.
And the shows just keep comin'! CM has done it again! This Long Form 1 is SICK...and the rest of the show does not let down.
Top notch sound....amazing musicianship and playing....5 Stars all around!! The current SKB is the shit!!!
Subject: Oh cool!
Another Charlie Miller Matrix! Oh yes... They are must haves, especially wiht how well the band is playing these days. I'm gonna go ahead and rate this 5 stars unheard 'cuz I KNOW it's gonna be good! Thanks for this.
